  1. So, I actually have some time at the end of the day today and thought I’d check out the menu, find out who the live music is, etc. Googled and got the Facebook page for the Senior Center. Last FB entry is June 25th.

    Ah, but there’s an events calendar, it says! So I click on the FB calendar link and am redirected to:

    http://dustindk.com/

    Inputting http://www.mltseniorcenter.com results in the same redirect.

    The Senior Center has a director, right? Shouldn’t there be an updated presence on social media sites and on the web?

    If the City is going to turn over a large real estate asset to this group, I’d like to see this group publicize itself in standard ways, so that citizens looking to join or otherwise participate in group functions can do so via direct online sources, rather than having to rely on a city-wide news site for information. It’s great that mltnews.com publicizes Senior Center activities, but this shouldn’t be the main online source for news/activity information about the Center.

    • Thought I’d chime in here since it applies. In 2012 I volunteered to build a web site for the Senior Center for free and I worked with then Director Cheryal Heppner to do so. When it came time to renew the domain registration in May I asked a current Board Member about the site and they said they were going to “let it go.” So I just had it redirect to my web site for the time being.

      • Very definitely not what I was hoping to hear as a response, but I appreciate the reply. Hopefully ‘let it go’ won’t happen to a City asset, too.
